Enjoy all that coveted Virgina Highland has to offer with Dekalb County taxes! This 1920's bungalow is nestled between N.Highland and Druid Hills making it truly the best of both worlds. This is a savvy buyer's chance to get into the neighborhood under $700k with an open floor plan! Permanent stairs in the guest bedroom would make for an easy addition/dormers in the attic space. Newly-paved private driveway and electric gate make for secure parking in the back. Light-filled kitchen with tons of windows overlooks brick patio. This house is truly an oasis in 30306! •
Allow me to schedule a private tour for you and make this your home before the holidays! •

Saw this whilst out on a #orientationday with some fantastic investors, who have just completed their @legacyedu mentorship with @hayley_andrews_propertylife
You would assume it is empty but knowing the area and the type of landlords around, I would expect someone to be living there especially with the broken windows as that won’t stop them renting the place out 🤦♂️🤦♂️☹️☹️ Now time to find some great investments for them 💪💪🏠🏠 #legacyeducation#greatday#dealtime

Cutting Renovation Costs without Cutting Quality #CLRBlog
As you probably know, it's easy to lower the costs of a renovation. Just hire an inexpensive, fly-by-night contractor — and hope for the best!
Chances are, you won't want to take that risk. So how do you ensure you get quality work while keeping your budget in check?
Here are some tips: • Get estimates from at least three contractors. Often prices can vary widely, even amongst contractors with similar reputations and experience. • Narrow the project focus. If you're getting a bathroom renovated, for example, decide whether you need the contractor to paint the new walls. Can you do that yourself? • Shop around for the building materials. Yes, contractors often have access to wholesale prices. Still, you might be able to find a bathtub and vanity at a lower cost or at least avoid any markup the contractor may charge. • Negotiate. Sometimes a contractor is willing to lower the price for concessions, such as quick payments or more time to complete the job. • Schedule the renovation during a low-demand season. For example, deck contractors charge more in the spring than the fall. It's supply and demand. More people want their decks done in the spring.
Keep in mind that spending a little more for a skilled and reputable contractor can save you money in the long run. The renovation will have fewer, if any, "issues" (that may require an expensive fix) and will last longer.
These railings had a surprisingly intricate design with a ton of block work. After figuring out a scrap spacer system to help measure quickly I was able to copy the original design.
Replacing old work is hard to plan for. I took out a bunch of rotten stretchers and railings, and rebuilt them with brand new pressure treated lumber for this client. #easypeasy
Now they're rock solid!

Completed this little downstairs W.C today, had been broken and unused for nearly 18 months and in a week turned it around to this ultra stylish finish, with a glass sink top to create a very sleek look !! #tiller#plumber#renovations#construction

This is it! The beginning of a large but exciting house project, taking a 1970’s property set on Jacksonville, Florida marshland and transforming this fixer upper to our dream home! Between an avid DIY guy and a chik with a vision, this should be an awesome journey! We would love for you to follow along, give input on design choices and learn a thing or two along the way 🔨☺️🏡 Welcome to The Hill House Reno!

All done, old handrail out and taken to the scrap metal guy.
I love using the tool in this picture, locally known as a Mattock.... does it have another name?
Woke up with a little wanderlust today. Wishing we could pay a visit to see the Manatees of Biscayne National Park! The beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay are the inspiration for one of the color ways in our Opal Blends collection. #wanderlust#Iwanttogotothere#biscaynenationalpark
Some fun facts about Manatees:
💦 Manatees, also known as Sea Cows, usually come up for air every 3-5 minutes but can stay underwater for up to 20 minutes at a time when they are resting.
💦 A group of Manatees is called an aggregation.
💦Their closest living relatives are elephants.
Manatee facts from Smithsonian Magazine.
What is that look in my eyes:
I use to be so self conscious of my big, “manly” (as I USE to call them) hands.
But these hands of mine have never let me down:
They’ve held and nursed a child.
They’ve renovated countless homes.
They’ve plastered many surfaces.
They’ve painted every thing in sight.
They’ve cooked dinner for my young.
They’ve played musical instruments.
They’ve raced dirt bikes through the woods.
They’ve gripped a tennis racket for sixteen years.
They’ve taken incredible photographs.
They’ve provided loving energy through touch.
They’ve taught me how to ground through yoga poses.
They’ve channeled prayers and manifestation through healthy postures.
They were made perfectly for me.
“...we find only one tool, neither created nor invented, but perfect: the hand of man.”
